Liwayway Scholarship competition extended for University Students

June 3, 2010

Students at the University of Winnipeg and University of Manitoba who have registered to attend the Migration and Development in the Philippines, 1960-2010 (Mult-1100 & Mult-2100)course at the University of Winnipeg are eligible to receive full-paid tuition under the ANAK Liwayway Scholarship. The deadline has been extended to June 30, 2010.

"We want to make sure all students have the opportunity to take part in this very important discussion. Canadians take for granted that there are so many Filipinos arriving as immigrants to the country. We forget to really ask 'why?' 'What's really going on (in the Philippines) to push millions of Filipinos to all corners of the world? It is so rare that a world reknowned scholar, like Antonio Tujan, can offer some real insight on the topic. We want to help all interested students take part and we know finances can pose a real challenge to this. Extending the scholarship is one way we can help," says ANAK.

Registered students will receive full paid tuition to attend the course through the
ANAK Liwayway Scholarship. Deadline for submission is June 30, 2010. Students are encouraged to contact info@anak.ca to express their intention to submit a scholarship application.
